been tracking china's political transition. president barack obama's administration has watched the chinese economy and military grow and has promised to take a tough stance with china on trade and other economic matters. the obama administration has also closely monitored china's disputes with japan and southeast asian nations over the islands in the east and south china seas. senior officials have refused to take sides. the president announced a year ago he will shift his country's focus to the asia-pacific region. he will have a chance to talk more about that plan over the weekend. obama will begin a four-day tour of southeast asia on saturday. he will be visiting thailand and myanmar and will attend the east asia summit in cambodia. the president promised during his re-election campaign to put more pressure on china to make it meet basic international standards with respect to trade. but analysts say despite his plans the world's top economies are tightly woven together and that interactions will continue. >>> the south korean government welcomed china's new leadership. >> t
, larry, that was at 6600 in march. 2009 but doubled to 13,000 under the obama administration? >> well, it was until he got re-elected. >> yeah. >> people think he's turning against them. >> i remember hearing the same argument from you in march of 2009 when the stock market was at its low, and you said that the obama administration policies were going to kill the stock market. and instead, it doubled. so people invested and made a ton of money. the reality, larry, is that elections have consequences. the election is over. the republicans lost. it's time to get over it and move on. that means we have to come together and create some sort of compromise. but it doesn't mean the republicans get their way and they don't move it all to the left. there has to be some movement to the center on both sides. the president's already indicated that in terms of spending cuts, which he said repeatedly. and what the democrats -- >> i never heard spending cuts. i never heard anything about spending cuts. he never heard -- >> he may not have said it today but there were references. >> like i said, you
states, particularly the obama administration, decide, are we going to be assisted with our own personal security issue here in the united states by the actions we take or are the re-- reactions that are going to be caused by our actions actually going to cause greater threats to our closest allies and to ourselves? unfortunately, that's what we're seeing. in fact, i had seen an article in may of 2010 that indicated that this administration, the obama administration, sided with israel's enemies in demanding that israel disclose any nuclear weapons. we had never sided with israel's enemies in trying to push israel into doing something against its own interests. when you're a very small country surrounded by countries that want to see you go away, it is important that they not know all of your defenses. going back in the old testament, you find history, king his kaija -- king hezekiah showing all the defenses they had in their armory he showed them to the leaders from babylon. as a result, ultimately that kingdom was lost to the babylonians. you don't show other nations, even people you th
won in part because of gifts the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community. here, offering one of the gifts to them. >> what the president did is, he gave them two things. one, he gave them a big gift on immigration, with the d.r.e.a.m. act and amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing, in order to get hispanic voters? >> number two, put in place obama care, which basically is $10,000 a family. i mean, it's a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group and, guess what? they'll vote for you. >> reporter: sources tell me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realized he'd lost. telling his closest circle the very next morning that america is becoming
petitions in favor of seceding from america on the obama administration's we the people website. so far, close to 700,000 signed on and petitions from alabama, florida, georgia, louisiana, north carolina, tennessee, texas grabbed at least 25,000 signatures. now to me, secession is silly. but what is not silly is actual catchtition. why not for four years pit red states against blue states with the respected ideas and have us put to the test and see who succeeds? red states will have fracking. blue will have frats. red states will have free markets. blue will be v fre have free pi. red states, death penalty. blue, tax. red will have kimberly guilfoyle. blue will have this. there is only one rule. no borrowing from china allowed. then maybe can see whose ideas work. blue state survive by acting red. red states are sur viveed by resisting the cool desire to go blue. maybe the best states are run by republican governors and worst cities run by democrats. this is your home so what country are you going to run to anyway? hawaii? they don't even have electricity. i want to go to you, bob. afte
. republicans have been criticizing the obama administration for not responding quickly enough to the violence outside the consulate. michael morrel is expected to testify today. >>> we will wait until tomorrow to hear from former cia director david petraeus. it was unclear until yesterday whether he would still answer questions after his sudden resignation late last week. he will not discuss the sex scandal that cost him his job during that closed hearing. >>> president obama telling republicans to come after him, not his cabinet for his administration's response to the attack in benghazi. he lashed out against republicans who have been critical of u.n. ambassador susan rice. they blasted her for saying it was sparked by an anti-islam film despite evidence that it was a coordinated terror attack. the president says she was just giving her best answer based on the intelligence she had been provided. senator john mccain is even trying to block -- threatening to block rice from becoming secretary of state if the president chooses her to succeed hillary clinton. >>> quickly approaching fiscal cli
administration had given to blacks, hispanics and young voters during obama's first term. obama, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. that means not french, not english. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comments, i'm still waiting for my gift. i'm waiting for my gift from obama. i haven't received my gift yet. >> where is it? >> maybe it was lost in the mail. >> you may have voted for him without getting that thing in the mail he was supposed to send everybody? >> maybe chris has it. >> i did not get my gift. let me j
? >> the israelis recognize theyor their own. i think they have little confidence in the obama administration to stand by them. they are pursuing their opponents. they have just eliminated an important one in hamas and hamas has been a terrible thorn in their side, has been threatening them, been conducting operations against them and this is a strong message to hamas that, you know, we are at you. you know, we will escalate this. i think -- they recognize this is the only message that hamas will understand. >> sean: if we can, tony, i want to rerack what we just played here. they videotaped this attack on jabari. you know, you can see the yellow circlesarn the car, that's the car he is in. and if i am an extremist and watching this, i am thinking, you know, those are israelis, they are pretty tough with their defense. >> i gotta tell you, it's a good shot. that's when we should be doing with precision. i am not a big fan of the drone program because i want to have live prisoners, but that's a good shot-- >>> great shot. >> this is a message to all of us, we will wait, we will be patient and
the obama administration spend yuyour tax money not just on health services, but p.r. to convince that you should you love obamacare? a house committee wants to know. they subpoenaed hhs committee chair kathleen sebelius. we have a panel here to discuss it. rick, what does the hill want? >> the hill wants to know what kathleen sebelius was spenning mono, and whether there was money proanted for hhs publicity, directed to improve the standing of the obama health care law. if it was spent on those purposes, it wasn't really doing its job. the obamacare is not nearly as possible as the administration wanted. i would also say, look, it is the law of land. as a political matter, this is a very legitimate inquiry, but have you more and more republicans saying, it's time to move on. i don't see this as a fruitful area to go through the things that happened in the last term. it is the law of the land. there is no point it try to repeal it as this jumpghture, right now. i don't know whati are going to accomplish. >> greta: apparently, gawp, correct me if i am wrong, one of the programs spent $20 mi

to find a safe haven because they know that the taxes are going to be higher than the obama administration is currently citing and they're afraid and they're terrified. >> that amounts to tax evasion, you move money off shore you've got to declare where it is and any income that you made on it. and are you telling us that rich folks are basically avoiding taxes? >> well, i think they're trying to be creative, like they always have been of the creativity makes the rich wealthy and that's what i found out over interviewing them over the last 30 years is that creativity is the best thing and i think they're trying to be honest about it, but creative. >> when does it come back to america? >> i don't know. it's a really good question, i'm asking them that and they don't know either. is america ever going to be the same? i don't know, four more years of both the obama administration, are we going to-- are we going to recognize this question after four more years, i hope so, i don't know. stuart: you're painting a pretty grim idea of the mood. it sounds like they're in despair. >> they are. there

he's convinced that rice is part of an obama administration cover-up over the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. mccain articulated his theory this morning, pledging to do everything he can to stop rice's nomination from moving forward. >> susan rice should have been known better, and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she would have known better. i will do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> and of course, mccain has enlisted reinforcements. here's comes senator lindsey graham of south carolina who is also questioning rice's credibility. >> i don't trust. the reason i don't trust her, because i think she knew better, and if she doesn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> this afternoon, the president smack them both down. >> when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. >> today's repudiation of mccain's

specific things have members said about the obama administration's response that has not been adequate enough? >> will come you hear different democrat and from republicans. republicans are particularly critical. they believe the obama administration should have known right away. this is not a spontaneous attack, not part of the protest, for example. they want to understand who knew what when. what does the president know about the attack? what is his national security team now? now they want to know who knew about the securities and the lead up to the attack because there were people in tripoli and libya saying that there wasn't enough security concerns because of the things going on in libya. >> mccain, graham and india yesterday made remarks about u.n. ambassador susan rice. what did they say in what is it mean in context context of the benghazi attacks? >> well, basically what they said is they don't trust her. they said she should have known better that you say five days after the attack but it looks to be a spontaneous response to anti-muslim video. they said she should have know
to trigger a promised review from the obama administration. the report notes that 69 similar petitions according to the alter net have garnered over 670,000 signatures from all 50 states. prompting a review that will no doubt consist of junior white house staffers enjoying a good laugh before placing them in a circular file. not to be left out someone offered another petition to the administration to strip the citizenship from everyone who signed the petition to secede and exile them. so it is good to know after the election and a decisive democratic victory that we are all united now and will never fight again. travis is calling us from chicago, illinois. good morning travis. you're on the "bill press show." welcome. >> caller: good morning, john. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: every time i hear all of this big uproar about benghazi thing, it makes me sick because out here in chicago we've got about 20 kids killing each other every weekend. most of them are innocent bystanders getting killed. there is a good handful

program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben

obama is not about to let a member of his administration get drugged through the mud by the righties. he was also very calculating on his take on the scandal surrounding former cia chief david pezus. >> i am withholding judgment on how the process around general pettia came up. and it's also possible you'd be asking why are we interfering in a criminal investigation. i think it's best right now for to us see how this whole process unfolded. >> the president also showed the immigration he has and pressure on republicans to reach a bipartisan agreement. >> before the election hi given a couple interviews where i had predicted that the latino vote to be strong and that and. >> i gets it's full steam ahead for the president's second term. he knows the work is not over on immigration. that is it going to be a big issue in 2013. climate chang came up today, which is very important to the economy and the economy itself. president obama needs to pain t -- maintain the support of the american people. at one point he was asked "you got a mandate"? >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got
